Draft at brewery. The pour is a light brown. The aroma is a sweeter malt. The taste is a standard nut brown, lacking a little on the flavor.

Light and watery brew with less aroma and flavor than desired from the style. Not bad by any means, just not much of anything.

Medium brown with an off-white head. Really nice toast, nutty, and caramel aromas. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel. Nice malty flavor profile that mirrors the aromas. Well done.

Bottle at home. Pours dark brown with a thin tan head of foam that disappeared quickly. Light aroma of roasted nuts. Tastes of nuts and malt. Light body. Not enough body for such a dark ale.

Bottle sample at RBWG. Pours brown in color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor had roasted malt, nuts, a little cocoa and some earthy bitterness. A bit better than their APA.

Look: pours a dark brown. Dark red color when held to the light. White head that turns into thick lacing.
Smell: ripe dark fruit smell. Cherries and raisins. Strong malt
Taste: strong cherries. Maybe a red apple
Feel: not to thick but a good beer. Nice carbonation. Smooth a lifter taste.
Overall: not a bad beer. Sweet on the nose and tongue.
